    Sixteen year-old Peggy Grahame has no idea what to expect when her dying father sends her back to upstate New York to live with his brother Enos. Because the brothers have been estranged for so long, all Peggy knows is that Enos lives in the family's ancestral estate, Rest-and-be-Thankful, built when the first Grahames came over from Scotland in the 1700's. On her way to Rest-and-be-Thankful, Peggy runs into Pat Thorne, a scholar who is trying to investigate his own ancestors who were active in the Revolutionary War. Both are puzzled when Uncle Enos refuses to talk to Pat, and sends him away, forbidding him to come back or ever speak to Peggy again. As Uncle Enos is apparently too busy to spend time with Peggy, she spends her days alone in the library or wandering the grounds. When the very sociable family ghosts (recognizable from the huge oil paintings around the house) start appearing and telling their stories of the Revolutionary War times, she is drawn into their stories, the mystery of Pat's relatives, and her uncle's strange behavior and resolves to get to the bottom of it all. A blend of historical fiction, mystery and suspense, this is an absorbing story that would also make a great read-aloud. 266 pgs, pb. – Jess

    Set in the 9th century during the height of Mayan civilization, this novel offers a peek into daily life and culture in a Mayan city. When we first meet her, Eveningstar Macaw is ten and is in the unique position of being a girl with the freedom to roam into the jungle. Her mother is a healer, but she has no time for collecting herbs – a job which falls to Eveningstar. On one of these trips, she spies a band of "Savages," another tribe who has been warring with her people for years. Although she is seen by a shy young Savage boy, she escapes back to the city to tell her older brother, who is a warrior. The warriors leave, and days go by before they return with a victory and captives, including the young boy. Because of Eveningstar's brother's bravery and decisiveness, her whole family is raised to noble status. They adopt the young captive, whom Eveningstar dubs "Small," and they begin to enjoy a more privileged position in the city. All too soon this privilege turns to danger. The king has died without a successor, and the high priest will stop at nothing to claim the position himself. With faithful Small at her side, Eveningstar survives tragedy and even sacrifice to stop the high priest's deceptive reign of evil. While the storyline may be a bit unbelievable at times (particularly for a girl in the time period), I enjoyed this book tremendously. Eveningstar is a brave, dedicated and passionate heroine who provides an inspiring role model to readers of all ages. By Chris Eboch, 236 pgs, hc. – Jess

Most of the words have quotations (from articles, plays, speeches, and so forth) that show how the word is used in context. Etymologies (word histories) appear in brackets following the quotations.
